DOUBLE BILL: EXPECT THE UNEXPORCUPINE & FOXDOG STUDIOS!

Thursday 5th November. Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm) Tickets: Pay What You Want! (Donations after the show)

Two superb shows, two glorious double acts that we saw lots up at the Edinburgh Fringe. Comedians from both also performed at Camden Comedy Club’s *Lunchtime Laughs* so they’ve got our stamp of approval!

FOXDOG STUDIOS LTD
One of our favourite shows from the Edinburgh Fringe – we saw it five times! Digital, geeky, funny – basically a bit of everything! They had an outstanding Edinburgh Fringe this year and now they’re in Camden!

Seven facts that’ll change how you think about IT rock’n’roll… It is music and computer programming. It is by a real IT consultancy, who recently had a large corporation tax bill. They are recouping losses with this lecture series on PAT testing. Audiences connect their phones via our on stage wifi. Play our games, music, animatronic dogs.

★★★★★ Broadway Baby
★★★★ Time Out
‘If Flight of the Conchords met Moss from the IT Crowd, and they had two illegitimate love children that they then left them in a room unsupervised – this would be the result’ – Broadway Baby
‘Ridiculously good fun and mightily impressive. It’s funny, too…if you don’t enjoy their brand of techy musical comedy, there must be something wrong with your hardware’ – Time Out

EXPECT THE UNEXPORCUPINE
2015 New Act of the Year Michael Stranney and Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Runner Up Olaf Falafel bring you an hour of fun-filled silly comedy. With a mixture of off-beat characters, one-liners, outlandish tales and an irrelevant spinning wheel, they invite you into their wholly unique worlds.
★★★★ Three Weeks
★★★★ EdFest Mag
‘A delight’ – Chortle
‘both ambitious and very smart’ – EdFest Mag
‘Original & entertaining’ – The Girl with the Edinburgh Tattoo
‘This is a satisfying, slick and silly way to spend an hour. – ThreeWeeks
